John Myers

Hey all-

Welcome to my blog. The fine folks at the BeyeNETWORK™ have provided me with this forum to offer opinion and insight into the worlds of telcommunications (telecom) and business activity monitoring (BAM). But as with any blog, I am sure that we (yes we... since blogging is a "team sport"...) will explore other tangents that intersect the concepts of telecom and BAM.

In this world of "Crossfire" intellectual engagement (i.e. I yell louder therefore I win the argument), I will try to offer my opinion in a constructive manner. If I truly dislike a concept, I will do my best to offer an alternative as opposed to simply attempting to prove my point by disproving someone else's. I ask that people who post to this blog follow in my lead.

Let the games begin....

The TDWI Conference in Orlando this week features a slightly different theme. Rather than strictly technical data quality the topic was overall leadership in the area of data governance. This difference in theme brought out “new blood” in terms of attendees and vendor/sponsors.

Many of these attendees and vendors are focusing their energy on the business, or contextual, aspects of data governance rather than just the technical, or syntax related aspects that have been traditionally a part of data quality. This manifests itself in areas like master data management (MDM) for customer relationship management as a part of integrated marketing efforts; revenue assurance as part of revenue management; or route optimization as part of an operations research segment of cost management.

This focus, on assessing the business value of an organization’s data in addition to its technical consistency, is showing the maturity of data professionals and their place in the organization. This is similar to my "Needles in the Haystack" posting earlier this month.
